Venue Features
The Scene:
Nestled at the base of Camelback Mountain on 250 acres in Scottsdale, Arizona, The Phoenician is an iconic luxury resort destination well known for its AAA Five Diamond service. Signature offerings include the recently enhanced, multi-tiered Phoenician Pools, which also showcase a lower level hand-laid in Mother of Pearl tile. Exquisite culinary offerings, as well as the new Phoenician Spa and Phoenician Athletic Club -- both debuting in Spring 2018 -- further define the guest experience. A variety of venues across more than 160,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting/event space cater to any special occasion - from a picturesque wedding ceremony overlooking the Orchid Falls, to an elegant gala affair in The Phoenician Grand Ballroom. 
Design:
Unveiling a fresh, contemporary luxury throughout, the AAA Five Diamond Phoenician presents personalized experiences that are rare and memorable by design. The result of the most massive renovation undertaken since the property opened in October 1988, the resort has transformed itself, introducing a diverse collection of offerings that honor both guest and destination. In fall 2017, a refurbished main lobby, Thirsty Camel Lounge, Afternoon Tea Room, retail space, and pool complex with both reserved seating and children’s area, debuted.  The Marketplace, a European-inspired café, and Mowry & Cotton, a lively, approachable venue featuring Modern American cuisine, also premiered, joining signature restaurants J&G Steakhouse and Relish Burger Bistro.  Yet to come in Spring 2018 is the new three-story Phoenician Spa, featuring a rooftop pool and Drybar; The Phoenician Athletic Club, with tennis, pickleball and basketball courts, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center; and a completely redesigned and rerouted 18-hole golf course. Complementing it all is the extensive remodel of all resort casitas and guestrooms, as well as the makeover of The Canyon Suites at The Phoenician – the only Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond hotel in the greater Phoenix area – which took place in summer 2016.
Standout Venue Features:

Jokake Inn: In the early 1900s, painter Jessie Benton Evans presented her son and daughter-in-law with 12 acres of land that she had purchased at the base of Camelback Mountain.  The couple built a unique adobe house on the land in 1926, expanding it over the years to accommodate visitors for tea, and eventually, overnight guests.

The house was given its name by a young Hopi Indian boy who saw the structure and called it “Jokake,” which means “mud house.” Today, Jokake Inn stands just inside the grounds of The Phoenician as a symbol of the hospitality of the old Southwest. Upon entrance to the expansive 250-acre Phoenician property, guests will be greeted by this historic adobe building on the left, surrounded by shady palms, charming cacti and colorful fauna. 

Orchid Lawn: Envision your special day amid an elegant garden setting, full of lush greenery and enchanting florals. Overlooking the Orchid Falls and a babbling brook, the Orchid Lawn exudes a radiant atmosphere in tropical surroundings. 

Camelback Mountain: The Phoenician offers an extraordinary experience with majestic Camelback Mountain as its backdrop. Guided hikes are available seasonally, providing breathtaking, panoramic views of the resort and surrounding Valley of the Sun.

Cactus Garden:  Whether taking a leisurely stroll or a guided tour, the Cactus Garden provides guests with an intimate look at the Sonoran Desert, showcasing 250 varieties of cactus, and numerous indigenous residents.
